Classified By: AMBASSADOR JOHN CLOUD FOR REASONS 1.4 (B) AND (D) 
 
¶1. (S) MFA Under Secretary Zygimantas Pavilionis told the 
Ambassador on July 3 that Lithuania remains willing to accept 
some detainees from the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center. 
Pavilionis said that things were going smoothly.  The only 
reason the process has slowed down is that the MFA needs to 
bring the new Head of the State Security Department, Povilas 
Malakauskas, up to speed on the issue.  FM Vaitiekunas met 
with Malakauskas on July 4 to provide an in-brief and 
Pavilionis told the Ambassador that this issue would be 
discussed in that meeting. 
 
¶2. (S) Pavilionis went on to say that the GOL was preparing 
to move into the implementation phase of this project.  He 
said there was a "political green light" to proceed.  We will 
report further developments as they arise.
